Before I start – I had some problems with taking pictures of this model (it is pretty dark, and the tones really not flew well with my camera), hence honestly speaking the transitions on the photo seem better than in actual life.
Which I found through facebook. During the workshop we painted this lady. Krzysztof actually posted a very great tutorial on this model here (which also goes through most of stuff we did through the training).
I wanted to participate in this, as firstly I really appreciate Redav’s work and because this kind of interactions provide a huge boost to development of my skills. At some point, getting someone to evaluate my work, as well as share his knowledge, let’s me go over I wall I got stuck on. It also gives a lot of motivation!
As of this, this model was:
This was the very first time I participated in this kind of an activity – this was the first time I painted with a big group of people. It was very nice to meet with a larger number of people that share your interests.
The workshop was extremely informative – I did learn a lot and met a number of great people. What I did not expect was, how tired I will be after it : P
(The next photo was edited a bit, to showcase general light placement)
As mentioned above everything was painted with 5 colours, which were:
The model had black undercoat. Grey paint was painted by airbrush from the left side of the model. I started with a sketch of highlights placement – trying to evaluate how the light would behave on this model.
There is tons of re-work, re-placement, corrections done durning this stage. About 70% of my time was focused on the skin.
Very simple – base was Mediterranean Blue – shades were done by adding black, highlights were done by adding white.
I am geeting back to my Custodes General : P
